TimeGate Studios has told readers on the Section 8 official forums that there will not be a demo released for the PC version of the game.
“We do not have plans to release a Section 8 demo for the PC at this time,” reads the thread. “Currently, we only have a demo for the Xbox 360 version.”
Sorry PC players, you will just have to take your chances with the retail version, which was released yesterday.
Unless, of course, you also own an Xbox 360. Still, that doesn’t give you an idea of how it plays on PC.

Southpeak shooter Section 8′s been pushed back a week, according to EG.

The jetpack blaster’s a PC and 360 title.

TimeGate Studios’ Robert Siwiak has said that the multiplayer in Section 8 will give players access to deployables instead of base building and the ability to create choke points.
“Playing a lot of other first-person shooters out there, I’m sure that many players can relate with finding this level designer-placed machine gun turret or something like that that always seems to be pointing in the wrong direction from where you want it,” the game director told Gamasutra.
“A direct counter to this was, well we couldn’t necessarily have base building in Section 8. The next best thing was giving players access to deployables — automated turrets or supply depots or sensor rays.
“The player can either, in one circumstance, if there’s a key bridge between two control points, can call down turrets to help defend that choke point and otherwise create that choke point that otherwise wasn’t there, or he can create on the edge of the map a forward staging area where he’s got the supply depot and other support structures that will otherwise help assault an enemy base that he’s got his sights keyed in on.”
Sure beats have a vacant turret with nothing but a wall to shoot at.

Section 8 will allow Xbox 360 users to set up and create dedicated servers.
According to producer Robert Siwiak, this is the first game on the console to do this.
The application will be downloaded on to player’s PC and helps them turn it into a dedicated server for the game. TimeGate will also be hosting some and the game will support multiplayer matches with up to 32 players.
It’s expected sometime this fall.

New screens for TimeGate’s FPS Section 8 popped up this morning over on Eurogamer Germany.
You will see loads of laser shooting, and armor that looks like RoboCop.
Well, most “spacey” shooters have armor reminiscent of RoboCop. At least they look that way to us.
Anyway, the game “gives players unprecedented strategic control over the battlefield, employing tactical assets and on-demand vehicle deliveries to dynamically alter the flow of combat. Set in the distant future when humanity is facing a growing insurrection among its colonies, Earth dispatches the elite 8th Armored Infantry to turn the tide.”
Still no date though.

Europeans can now register for the Section 8 beta, to take place this summer.
The TimeGate FPS “gives players unprecedented strategic control over the battlefield, employing tactical assets and on-demand vehicle deliveries to dynamically alter the flow of combat. Set in the distant future when humanity is facing a growing insurrection among its colonies, Earth dispatches the elite 8th Armoured Infantry to turn the tide.”
Sounds awesome. Go play it. There’s no final date on as yet. Press release after the break.

TimeGate Studios announced today that it has reached a settlement with Paramount Digital Entertainment and Paramount Pictures regarding a trademark infringement dispute over Section 8.
The lawsuit alleged that Paramount’s use of Section 8 as the name of its upcoming interactive web series was a trademark infringement based on TimeGate’s rights in the name.
Paramount has agreed not to use the name Section 8, and because of this TimeGate has agreed to dismiss the lawsuit.
Section 8 is a TimeGate FPS, and the company claimed it had set-up meetings regarding “potential business ventures” with Paramount which were canceled without explanation or follow-up.
Three days after canceling the meeting, Paramount announced plans to release an interactive web series called Section 8 with a foreign company.
Press release through the jump.
